San Francisco psychsters Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound are getting ready to unleash their latest batch of magically heavy rock on April 7. The new album, When Sweet Sleep Returned, was produced by studio maestro Tim Green at Louder Studios. According to the band's label, Tee Pee Records, the disc is a combo of Crazy Horse, the Who, Pink Floyd, and "Italian bastardizations of Lalo Schifrin cop movie scores." Yeah, that sounds pretty dreamy to me. Check out an early track off Sweet Sleep,  "The Slumbering Ones," here. It's a gorgeous, meandering epic complete with what sounds like flutes, mandolins, and plenty of gracefully grey guitar riffs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
